In relation to some of the points which parents have asked the school to address, such as ‘more parent meetings’ and ‘better chances to speak with the teachers’ etc there have been the following actions:
Parent Introductory Meetings at the start of the academic year for KS2 were combined with class assemblies and many parents agreed this was helpful, in terms of time.

Protecting children in education settings
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School and college staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. Schools and colleges and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. Schools and colleges should work with social care, the police, health services and other services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
